Fans of the "WPR Rebuttal" podcast have wondered:

1) Why the sudden departures from topics that had been planned, sometimes publicly announced, weeks in advance?

2) Why do some weeks go silent altogether, without an episode??

3) Why is it nearly impossible to maintain an established schedule???

It's because our host and content producer, SenatorJPO, has been perpetually side-tracked with such minor issues as:

Finding-out the dairy plant -- where he's "permatemped" as box folder, cheese packer, and palletizer for the last 3 years (of his finite, dwindling life) -- will -never- offer him a job!

Unfailingly, SenatorJPO has worked Tuesdays as packer on the auxiliary line, and every weekend as box folder, palletizer, and overall assistant to the packaging team, at a local dairy plant. He's had perfect attendance and reprimand-free performance the entire time.

Yet, after following-up on an employment application for third-shift packaging, SenatorJPO was informed,* "The supervisors admire the fact that you're extremely hard-working, but they believe you wouldn't be a good fit for the packaging job."

This begs a fourth question: How can a hiring manager assume you would be unable to "web" film onto rollers; scan pallet tickets; operate brine gates; etc. if you've never been allowed to -try?-

After all, -every- regular / full-time employee who operates the film roller messes-up -every- week... Without fail!

Why would the supervisor believe SenatorJPO might fare any worse? For all he knows, SenatorJPO could be better!

What's next for SenatorJPO? And why they didn't tell him sooner? Download this episode to find out!
